Healthcare is already implementing internet in the services. Now patients can send their medical reports to doctors at other cities/countries and get doctor's advice. They can fix their operation at the same time, if needed and if adviced by the doctor. Many hospitals in India are already having this service.

There are already so many developments. We hear of operations conducted by robots. Administration in hospitals can get better. Patients are likely to be better informed about diseases, drugs, their side effects etc. Perhaps this is the reason why hospitals these days are reluctant to give details of the ailment or treatment to the patient. Awareness is increasing and the health care industry also has to catch up with the trends quickly.
